One Day Vegan Meal Plan

This weeks delicious daily meal plan features overnight oats, lentil dahl, cold noodle salad and oatmeal raisin energy balls. You can prep all of these recipes ahead of time as part of your weekly food prep.

Upon Rising/Pre-Workout

  • Water with 1/2 a Lemon Squeezed In 
  • 1 Mandarin Orange

I drank my lemon water as soon as I woke up and scarfed down the mandarin on the way to the gym. Fruit makes an awesome pre-workout snack and a mandarin orange was the perfect little natural boost of energy.


  • Oats with Chia, Ground Flax, Almond Milk, Banana, Blueberries, Cinnamon

After the gym, it was time for breakfast and I’m still on my daily chia seed kick. Today I added in oats and ground flax so it was a little more substantial but with all the blueberries and banana, it didn’t need any sweetener. It’s just delicious as is!

To make this, add all of the ingredients to a container and place in the fridge overnight. I used about 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1/4 cup oats, 1 cup milk, 1 tbsp ground flax and added blueberries, sliced banana and 1 tsp of cinnamon.

This coconut red lentil dahl is one of my all time favourite recipes. It’s warming, hearty, flavourful and high in protein and fibre. It’s a must-make!

I was going to mix the kale into the dahl but didn’t want to mess with something so beautiful, so I opted for some sautéed kale on the side. I used a bit of coconut oil, lime juice, salt and garlic to cook the kale and it was perfect. I ate a huge plate of it before I even thought of taking a photo, so you’ll have to take my word for it.
